Thanks for hanging with us this Summer!

We loved movin’ & groovin’ with you the last few months! Our Summer Series featured our annual Flatiron Fitness Series, Sunset Salsa nights, and live music on the NoMad Piazza.

We had over 286 participants who worked out with us over eight weeks of Flatiron Fitness in partnership with Whole Foods Market. We also had an estimated 375+ people who showed up to Sunset Salsa over 2 dates in July.

If you enjoyed our free events, consider supporting our area businesses who help make them possible.
